A great Wikipedia page about solder alloys, including info about melting points.
There is also this Alloy Temperature Chart with similar info.
Today I discovered this on Wikipedia: All public logs. It’s interesting to see that for something as huge as Wikipedia they still only process a command (vs query) every few seconds.
Today I discovered wikiscript: Open Data Scripts for Wikipedia – Turn Free-Style (or Semi-Structured) Text into Structured Data.
So I found my way to the a Mathematics article on Wikipedia. Good reading!
Today I learned about weasel words at Wikipedia…
I was doing some research about free software licenses as a part of developing ProgClub’s terms and conditions, and found this list of free software licenses from the FSF, and the same list of FSF approved software licenses on Wikipedia. I noticed the cool table sorting facility they have on the Wikipedia page, and wonder if that’s built in to MediaWiki..? It would be cool if it only required a class specification to have it work like that.
They all sound great in theory, with their lofty ideals, but the closer you get to them the more you realise their proponents and participants are generally small-minded closed-minded exclusive elitist authoritarian wankers of the first order.
Involved in some design discussion on the wikitech mailing list.
